HighScope classrooms follow a predictable sequence of events known as the daily routine. This provides a structure within which children can make choices, follow their interests, and develop their abilities in each content area.

Choice Time
CHOICE TIME
  • Giving choices to children always helps in honing their decision-making skills.
  • At this time of the day children are given both, the choice and the apt material to choose from and play with.
  • Children focus on the what they can create and how they can use their skills to transform a simple teaching aid or a toy into a new invention.
  • This is the time of the day we can observe children creating empty carton boxes into farms and old clothes into robes.
Small Group Time
SMALL-GROUP TIME
  • To identify the individual strengths and challenges, a small group is a prerequisite for being child-centric.
  • Here, children gather in small group and interact with the teachers while they are being closely observed and scaffolded to do the activities.
  • This time of the day provides the child a safe space to communicate and express what they hold back due to inhibitions in a larger setting.
  • The activities here range from tracing letters, playing number games, solving puzzles etc.
Large Group Times
LARGE-GROUP TIMES
  • Children learn the principles of participating in a team and building communities best in a large group setting.
  • Here, children gather in a large group with their classmates and teachers to engage in different activities.
  • From taking turns, to taking lead and synchronizing with the team, here children build upon their social skills.
  • The activities here range from music, group recitals, dance to story narrations, puppet shows and much more.
Outside Times
OUTSIDE TIME
  • Children learn best when exposed to environment and physically evolve beyond the walls of the classroom.
  • Given to the weather, children along with the teachers spend around 30 mins each day in the outdoor area.
  • Here, children not only get to observe nature but also the most important lessons of life are learnt here like climate, sun, clouds etc.
  • Children can be observed here, engaged in different physical activities along with honing their senses.
Transition Times
TRANSITION TIMES
  • This time of the day helps in creating a scheduled routine for the children. With a consistent daily routine child know what is going to take place next.
  • Transitions are the gaps between other blocks of the day, like arrival to choose time or outdoor to small group time.
  • Whenever possible, children are given choices on how to make the transition. For example, they may choose how to move across the floor on their way to small-group time.
Eating Times
EATING AND RESTING TIMES
  • Meals and snacks allow children to enjoy eating healthy food in a supportive social setting.
  • Rest is for quiet, solitary activities.
  • Children can be observed reading, engaging in self play during this time if they choose to not sleep.
